As we gear up for the much-anticipated APATS 2024 in Singapore, we are excited to showcase our lineup of distinguished speakers who will be sharing their insights on the latest advancements in aviation training. This year’s event promises to be a game-changer, offering invaluable knowledge and networking opportunities for professionals across the aviation industry.

One of the highlights of APATS 2024 will be a presentation by Aleksandra Kapela, an Associate Aviation Psychologist renowned for her work in pilot competency assessment. Aleksandra's presentation, titled: Clearing the Turbulence: The Role of Psychometric Screening in Safeguarding Gen Z Pilots’ Mental Wellness

In the dynamic world of aviation, where precision and safety take precedence, a new generation of pilots emerges, ready to chart the course of tomorrow’s skies. However, within the intricacies of technology and operations lies a crucial concern often overlooked: the mental well-being of Gen Z pilots.

Aleksandra's presentation will highlight the significance of the mental health landscape within aviation, resonating with the discerning audience of aviation professionals. Exploring the high-pressure environment that characterises the aviation industry and the unique role of pilots, it will unravel the various stressors and challenges facing Gen Z pilots on their path to excellence.

Central to this discussion is the transformative potential of psychometric screening, specifically tailored to meet the unique demands of aviation and the new generation. Through scientifically validated assessments and questionnaires, airlines and flight schools can gain valuable insights into the psychological well-being of their pilots, facilitating proactive intervention and support strategies.

Moreover, this generation of pilots operates within a distinctly different reality than their predecessors. Raised in an era of rapid technological advancement and shifting societal norms, Gen Z pilots bring forth unique challenges, demands, and attitudes towards life, work, and technology. Additionally, in a time when mental well-being is gradually shedding its taboo status, there’s an increased imperative to address these issues head-on. Implementing appropriate strategies and tools, especially in an industry where there’s no room for error, becomes paramount.
